Skanska wins £90M Battersea fit out contract

The contract award comes from Carillion which is in charge of the overall £400M Phase 1 development. Work will start on site in September and about 250 construction jobs will be created over its two year duration.

 

The contract is for mechanical and electrical shell, core and fit-out works. The prime residential apartments are contained in two buildings and include a large communal basement and podium areas.

 

Martin Neeson, Skanska Managing Director, said: “This contract is great news, not just for Skanska, but also for our client and eventually for those people who will be living in the newly-built homes. Residential schemes are a strategic priority for our engineering business and this development offers an opportunity to build on our successful work at One Tower Bridge.”

 

Construction work is under way on other parts of Phase 1 of the Battersea scheme which is a mixed use development, with 11 penthouses included in the 866 apartments, shops, theatre space and offices, all contained in two buildings built on a podium with two basement parking levels.

 

The main block will vary in height from eight storeys at one end, rising to 18 storeys before reducing to 12 storeys at the northern end. The second block will be eight storeys high. Work started on site last year and is due for completion in 2016.
